Why Best Food Friends?

Fast food has replaced healthy eating and it is the main culprit that leads to childhood obesity and obesity related diseases.

These engaging characters and their fun loving adventure stories relate to the personality of the characters. Kids see the characters as being fun and this encourages them to eat healthy. They also serve as a tool to help families make better food choices and improve their overall health. There are seven books in the series. Introduce your kids to their new best friends today. It’s the recognition of the characters that leads to healthy eating!

Posh Pear came to my daughter’s school, when she came home she said, “ apples are my favourite fruit but I think I like pears better now.” As a result she now eats pears she never wanted to eat them before and Posh pear is one of her favourite stories.

Susanne Ford

Dear Catherine,

I wanted to let you know how much my daughter enjoys the Posh Pear story. The character is so engaging and the illustrations are fantastic. She asks me to read it to her all the time. We look forward to reading the rest of the series. Well done!

Linda Grey

Best food friends are too cool. I just love Posh Pear, my kids think they are great too! Any chance of a Posh Pear sticker for my car?

My three kids all love the Best Food Friends books I have a 3 year old a 4 year old and Toby is 6. We read a best food friends story every night. These books make it easy to talk about healthy eating. We have also made some of the yum recipes. Toby took his favourite book Busy Broccoli to school everyone loved it .
Thanks

Catherine

When Busy Broccoli attended my son’s school he came home and wanted to go to the supermarket and buy broccoli. When I said “but you don’t eat broccoli” he replied, “yes I do Busy Broccoli came to our school today.” I was amazed of the impact the character had on him. Keep up the good work!!

Hi Suzy,

When Kulture Break came to our school Posh Pear performed a song which the kids loved. I was wondering if we can get a copy of the song so we can play it at our Whole School Gatherings? We’d like to get the kids dancing to it and keep the Freshtastes characters in their minds.

We love the Best Food Friends!

The characters are lovely, and children enjoy the fun and colorful stories.

Curly Celery is our favorite at the moment, and we actually have also bought celery now

more often, as the children ask for Curly when we are grocery shopping.

Looking forward to spring and summer when we get to go to the Farmer’s market and more of our new Friends there 🙂 .

Biggest thank you for these inspiring books.

Hi Farrah,

I would like to thank your team from Kulture Break – Rachel, Jez and Steve for delivering a wonderful and straight to the point, yet simple to understand presentation about fresh foods to Torrens Primary School today. My daughter, who is a student at Torrens was most impressed that Rachel – her Hip Hop teacher from term 1 was there too. Posh Pear and Busy Broc have been the topic of conversation at home this evening and a lot more vegetables were eaten at dinner.

I’m sure that other families are experiencing similar conversations and building on their healthy eating habits tonight.

Thank you also to Catherine Chapman for her enthusiasm and passion about healthy eating. I am glad there is someone out there promoting the importance of healthy eating and moving.

Elizabeth Jenkins

Dear Catherine,

We love your stories and the clever way your characters are never seen by humans. My kids both like different characters Olivia likes Clever Carrot and was very upset when she lost her bag tag we had to get her another one. Pete loves Silly Sweet Potato and always wants me to read his story. Great and clever way to get the message through to kids about healthy eating makes it easy to relate.
All the very best
